Toxic Release Inventory: What You Must Report

The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting deadline is fast approaching on July 1st.  Now is a good to review your reporting requirements.

President Obama’s Omnibus Appropriations Act rescinded EPA’s TRI Burden Reduction Rule of 2006. The Act requires that all reports on PBT chemicals be submitted on Form R, the more detailed form. For all other chemicals the shorter Form A may be used only if the annual reporting amount is 500 (lb) or less and if the chemical was manufactured, processed or otherwise used in an amount not exceeding 1 million lb during the reporting year.

Facilities With The Following Criteria Must File When…

  • Your facility has the equivalent of 10 or more full-time employees;
  • Your facility is classified in a covered North American Industrial Classification System Code, or is a federal facility; and
  • You are required to report any EPCRA Section 313 chemical not listed as a persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic PBT chemical that is manufactured or processed at your facility in excess of 25,000 pounds per chemical or category over the calendar year, or otherwise used in excess of 10,000 pounds per chemical or category over the calendar year. For PBT chemicals, the thresholds are in the range of 10 to 100 pounds (lb) and are specific to the chemical. The threshold for dioxins, a special PBT, is 0.1 grams.
